Although summer is two months away, you may already be thinking about new bathing suits.
So here’s a great tip for parents: Never buy your kid a bathing suit that’s BLUE.
A Florida swimming teacher posted a video TikTok that’s racked up millions of views in the past week. She says blue bathing suits are dangerous, because they’re impossible to see.
To show others what she meant, she bought one for her daughter. The worst color she could choose was light blue. Here’s the photo.
It’s dangerous because it’s the exact same color as the bottom of every swimming pool. So it’s hard to keep track of them in the water and make sure they’re okay.
A few other lifeguards agreed with her. Particularly for children, bathing suits in light blue are unsuitable. And light pastels in general aren’t great.
They recommend sticking with bright colors like red or orange. They’re much easier to see.
